alternate delegate or how I became part of the democratic process...


I participated in the local primary caucus today here in Seattle, and in turn became a alternate delegate for Barack Obama. Democracy, it was electric to participate, to be in a crowded room of enthusiastic participants. I'm looking forward to seeing how this process plays out, what impact I have on the process, and it's impact on me. There was a line that went around the block to get into the caucus today, and everyone was excited, smiling, and wanting to participate. This day was a turning point in my life, it's the kind of thing I imagined being a part of as a kid, I feel connected to the process for the first time. Exciting times folks, exciting times...
